P-51/F-6B Mustang Intake Colors


Recommended Posts

I'm working on a Tamiya P-51D Mustang which will be in Tuskegee Airman markings & an Accurate Miniatures F-6B which will be finished as Little Sir Echo.  Does anyone know what color the inside of the intake should be?  Neither kit gives a color reference for that area.

Not sure which of two possible areas you want info on.....I'm no expert, but I believe the interior of the actual "intake" scoop on the bottom is natural metal. However, the interior fuselage area where the actual boxy radiator sits is usually chromate yellow primer, and some of that is visible from the rear underside. Hope this helps!

Thanks, GIl.  Your answer is what I'm looking for.  The instructions show the zinc chromate further down the intake but not the mouth of the intake.
